Marvel Studios introduced the official cast for its next film, The Eternals, along with its release date, during its Saturday night panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
The official cast includes Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee and Angelina Jolie. The film arrives in theaters on November 6, 2020.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige introduced the cast to the packed crowd in San Diego Comic-Con's Hall H. One name absent from the cast announcement is Strangers Things star Millie Bobby Brown, though she did shut down the rumor earlier this month in a livestream video.
Created by Jack Kirby in the 1970s, the Eternals are a race of superpowered, near-immortal beings formed by the Celestials. Although they've yet to appear in the MCU proper, their existence has been alluded to in the Guardians of the Galaxy films.
Directed by Chloé Zhao with a screenplay by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, The Eternals stars Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh and Angelina Jolie as Thena. The film arrives in theaters on November 6, 2020.
